Just had to brag a bit:
My eldest grandson married the love of his life this morning in Gainesville,
FL and the happy couple are now on the way to their new home in Starkville,
MS, where he begins his new position in the Communications Dept of MS State,
on Monday, August 1st.
Since I wasn't there because of illness, he called during the reception to
say how much I was missed; so sweet & thoughtful of him, in my opinion.

Congratulations! And I think it was really sweet of him to call you. I
wouldn't have been able to call anybody on my wedding day, but then, I had
everybody I cared for in the room, and I was the bride, not the groom. I
think men stand this kind of event a lot more coolly. BTW, wasn't that the
wedding you wondered what to wear to? Life's way of helping you with
decisions. :-( Anyway, as Barbara said, I bet you'll go and visit him/them
in his/their new home soon.
Thank you, Ursula. This was the wedding I was looking forwarded to
attending, but GOD had a different plan. As I'd mentioned, DS, with whom I
live, & I were going to drive to FL for the wedding and then drive up to
visit the younger DS in SC to see the younger DGDs.
DS became ill and his doctor gave him a 3-week supply of a strong antibiotic
and told him, it'd be dangerous for him to drive so far in this heat.
I am unable to fly anymore; so he flew over for the wedding, and is on a
flight home now.
He and the groom planned for the couple to call me during the reception on
DS's phone at a time when the guests were dancing and they were sitting
alone. I couldn't believe it; I was thrilled beyond words. This is the
eldest DGC and we have always been very close.
I'm so happy for them. And what a sweetheart to call you!! I know you
wanted to be there, but when you are able to visit, you and your son will
get them all to yourselves and not have to share them with all the other
wedding guests. ;)
Thanks, Sharon, for your comments. They did not take a honeymoon, he had to
report into work yesterday, so the drive from Gainesville, FL to Starkville,
MS was it for now.
After football season is over, & before Girls' softball season begins, they
should be able to go somewhere for a few days.
i'm very sorry you were not able to be there...but i think it speaks
volumes about the kind of man he is to remember to call his grandmom.
God Bless the new couple! (and here is hoping a trip to MS is in your
very near future!!)
It's a 9-hour drive to see them, versus the 17-18 hours to FL; I am already
making plans for next month or early October.
Beverly, enjoy your vacation and please take photos to post for us to see.
